Before a medical intervention is performed, here are a few things to ask:
1. A clear explanation of the problem
2. Information about possible alternatives
3. A time limit on your decision that will not endanger either you or the baby
Sometimes interventions are performed and they’re either not necessary at that very moment or perhaps there is a less severe alternative that serves the same purpose. Make sure whichever procedure is being performed is absolutely necessary… sometimes they are and sometimes they aren’t.
